I quite enjoyed this one. The doctors companions have a lot to do and are used sorta well. The guest cast have a lot to say also. There is a lot going on, but the story doesn’t get confusing. This being said the reveal at the end of episode three seems a bit cheap. The best thing about Chimes Of Midnight was that the doctor had no idea what was going on in that one. Here however he seems to get a fair idea rather quickly. Overall I’d say it is a good listen, not a waste of time. Don’t go in expecting to hear something similar to Chimes Of Midnight

Before listening I'd heard this mentioned in the same Breath as Chimes of Midnight. Unfortunately it doesn't quite live up to that comparison. It is a good story and certainly one of Sixies better efforts of late but I really felt the climax let it down. It was a bit underwhelming at the end but still, a very clever idea and room for a sequel.

What starts as a standard spooky story set in a creepy caravan park becomes both more convoluted and more interesting as it goes on. The story twists and turns with a nice balance of story and character and by the end, becomes quite gripping. Although the resolution is a bit of a cheat, the final note ends the story on a spine-tingling high.

My feeling with this release is that the first two episodes were too heavy on atmosphere and too light on plot. Certainly character and setting were well established, but the writer was so determined to "show" us that the story was spooky rather than "tell" us that the plot did not advance. There were long stretches of wandering around between key story reveals.

Then, when we reached the end of episode two, we have a major plot development that makes the story far more interesting and the cliff hanger leaves the listener asking what is going on.

Throughout the story, both Flip and Connie are eager to move on and get home. They both sound like the doctor has dragged them into one adventure too many. This adds to the tension of the episode. The problem is that the slow reveal of story means that we are a long way into the story before the Doctor has motivation to investigate. The story does become good, but it takes time to get there.
